White House slams those attacking and opposing judicial nomination of Pakistani-American


WASHINGTON: The White House has slammed those attacking and opposing the nomination of highly accomplished Pakistani-American lawyer Adeel Mangi to serve on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and said the US Senate must stand against hate.

If confirmed, Mangi would be the first-ever Muslim-American judge to serve on a federal appellate court. President Joe Biden nominated him to the prestigious position in November last year.

“Some Senate Republicans and their extreme allies are relentlessly smearing Adeel Mangi with baseless accusations that he is anti-police. That could not be further from the truth, and the close-to-a-dozen law enforcement organisations that have endorsed him agree,” White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients said. (PTI)
